    Great carbine Jordan and a pretty damn interesting unit marking to boot! I love the Suhl crest, nothing beats the eagle!

    Paul, I took another stab at the barrel markings. The WaA are double struck, so the bottom two are extremely hard to read. The top is most certainly 13 though. There are no trademarks or other...

    Hi all,
